Nas featuring Amy Winehouse – Cherry Wine

Before Amy Winehouse passed away, she collaborated with Nas on Cherry Wine, the fifth single from his eleventh studio album Life Is Good. Today, we’re getting a music video for the song.

Cherry Wine was tittled after Amy Winehouse’s guitar, which she called “cherry”, and features a narrative between ill-fated lovers. In the video, Nas works as a bartender with eyes for a beautiful patron. While she notices him noticing her, she plays him in order to get chosen by a baller. As the narrative progresses, old footage of Winehouse is  projected onto a brick wall in the club. The video ends with Nas dedicating the song to her.

Cherry Wine was directed by Jay Martin. You can check out his work here.

    Very few people realize how close the two of them actually were. It’s rumoured that Amy’s song Mr. Jones was about our dear Nas (birth name Nasir Jones)…
